End of First Quarter!

We are so proud of our hard working students!

Report Cards will be sent home the week of October 28th they need to be returned in a timely manner.  All report cards must be return by November 6th.

Students should be at the 25% completion mark in each of their courses, as the first quarter is closing. If students are not to the 25% mark, please encourage extra work to be completed at school or an assignment or two completed for homework, just until they are on track.  Students should be completing 6-8 assignments each day to stay on trek.

Please be mindful tardy marks count against your student, if a student acquires 3 tardy marks, it counts as an unexcused absent. Students may only have a total of 8.5 unexcused absences each quarter without reflection on their grades. If your student will be late or absent due to medical or emergency reasons, please contact the school office the day of incident.

If you have any concerns regarding grades or attendance please contact the school office.

Thank you for choosing Knox Academy for your student’s education. We are blessed to work with each student, and have seen such growth within the students in these short 9 weeks.
